MADISON, Wis.-- The 15th-ranked Wisconsin wrestling team (12-5, 5-2) appeared to have all the momentum heading into intermission over No. 8 Nebraska (12-2, 6-2) thanks to No. 7 Isaac Jordan's thrilling upset win at 157 lbs., but the Huskers proved to be too much and ultimately prevailed, 22-15.

With the Badgers down 9-6 heading into the 157 lbs., bout, 7th-ranked redshirt freshman Isaac Jordan squared off against undefeated and No. 1-ranked James Green and emerged victorious in gripping fashion.

 Fast Facts
• #7 Jordan hands #1 Green first loss of season
• Medbery wins 20th match of year
• Badgers will honor seniors prior to Sunday's dual

Down 1-0 in the third period with under 90 seconds remaining, Jordan recorded an escape to even things up and send it into sudden victory. After the sudden victory period and the tiebreaker sets didn't crown a winner, Jordan notched a takedown 21 seconds into the second sudden victory period to hand Green his first loss in 27 matches this season.

"He had a game plan and he stuck to it," Wisconsin head coach Barry Davis said. "One little mistake in the second period where he let Green get in too deep, but overall a solid performance.

"Isaac knows wrestling, he understands the sport and he stuck to the plan. Great match."

No. 9 Ryan Taylor got the action started with a 5-3 sudden victory decision over No. 11-ranked Tim Lambert at 125 lbs.

At 141 lbs., redshirt freshman Jesse Thielke notched his fourth-straight win, shutting out Colton McCrystal by decision, 5-0.

With Jordan's win, the teams entered the break tied 9-9.

Nebraska appeared to have regrouped following the intermission and rattled off three straight bonus-point victories to take a 13-point lead.

Austin Wilson took down Frank Cousins by major decision at 165 lbs., by a score of 13-0 and 3rd-ranked Robert Kokesh defeated No. 20 Scott Liegel by technical fall, 16-1, at 174 lbs.

Nebraska closed out the run with 9th-ranked TJ Dudley's major decision victory over Dylan Iczkowski at 184 lbs., 11-2, and suddenly found themselves on top by a score of 22-9.

Timmy McCall, who entered the dual with a 12-11 record, got UW back on track at 197 lbs., by winning by decision, 8-3, over Caleb Kolb. No. 10 Connor Medbery then closed things out for the Badgers at heavyweight with his 20th win of the season, defeating Collin Jensen, who was also going for his 20th victory, by decision, 5-2.

Wisconsin was without 5th-ranked Tyler Graff at 133 lbs., and Jackson Hein at 184 lbs. due to injury.

The Badgers close out the regular season Sunday at 1 p.m. on Senior Day against No. 3 Iowa at the UW Field House.
